After the recent and likely fictional Nikon Roadmap Leak (see Nikon Roadmap in our forums for the full translation), Thom Hogan has put together his speculated "Possible Nikon Roadmap".
Note Thom does have good sources, and a pretty good track record when it comes to predicting Nikon products, so his version of the roadmap is probably best described as "educated speculation".
Thom speculates early 2010 for either the D2000 or D4000 release. He expects the D4000 to split the D3000 and D5000 features (e.g. add video but not flip screen).
His full roadmap with a lot more background info and explanation can be found by clicking the source link below.
